Catching up

Well, it has been pretty eventful working with Sky.

Monday, we went on our weekly trail ride.

The kayaks were going to eat her, she was convinced of this. She's a very smart horse and she kept having to look back to make sure they either weren't there or weren't following her.

We did some hills, some galloping, some cantering, trotting, and all and all, had a great ride.

But the highlight of our ride....

We jumped for our first…

Day from poop....literally

So starting with yesterday, rough day at work. Just busy busy busy.

I go out to the barn and I'm saddling up Sky. My mom calls and I'm talking to her while saddling up, and I told my mom straight up that I really couldn't talk because I was tacking up. My mom is a horse person, she should know this.

Well, she kept talking. And Sky mildly scared herself, I don't exactly know how, and she jumped in the air and landed on my two middle toes of my left foot. It wasn't her…

Trail Ride

Sky and I went on our first trail ride today.

Since she's only 4, I didn't really know what to expect from her.

She was AMAZING. She was looking around at stuff, yes, but she didn't spook, she was smart, and wasn't dangerous at all.

The best part about today? She and I cantered for our first time.

At home, I've been working on our walk and trot, but she was doing so good today, I thought...well why not!

My jaw was dragging behind us. I had… Continue

My friend came over to meet Sky today.

I spent a little time working her at the walk and trot some more, with some major improvements. I'm so proud of how she's coming a long.

I free jumped her a little bit as well.

We're going on a trail ride tomorrow so I didn't want to tire her too much! But she's being such a good little girl!!! /end proud mommy

I just joined this lovely site but can't figure out where else to post!!!

I am currently doing a free lease on an Appy sport horse. Her confirmation is GREAT and she has a great free jump form. She is 4 years old.

She has most of her professional training in western pleasure, which she does not enjoy. This is why she is now in my possession.

She is having a hard time with the communication differences from WP to H/J. My first big problem was getting her to…

Hi Heather,
The best place to ask for advice is in the Advice Exchange under discussions. You go to the Discussions list on the right and scroll down to the bottom to where it prompts you to "Start Discussion". You can then put your discussion in the Advice Exchange, or any other category where it might fit in. Don't worry about posting it as a blog though. People post all kind of things there. But you will get your best answers in the discussion section. Good luck!
